Final Mission of 1LT Kenneth J. Farrell

On January 4, 1968, a U.S. Army Cessna O-1E Bird Dog observation aircraft from the 74th Army Aviation Company was shot down west of Saigon, RVN. The light spotter plane had crashed east of the Xang canal, north of Long Dinh, seven miles north of Dong Tam in Dinh Tuang Province. The downed plane was discovered at 7:55 AM on January 5th by an Army gunship. The bodies of both crewmen were lying alongside of the wreckage. Examination of the remains indicated that the pilot, 1LT Thomas D. Babin Jr., had been shot numerous times which was the probable cause of the crash. The artillery observer, 1LT Kenneth J. Farrell, was shot only once, between the eyes, which suggested that he had been pulled out of the aircraft while still alive and then executed. Both bodies were stripped of all documents and their operation was deemed compromised and subsequently cancelled. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
